Other Information: Non-Identifiable Data: When you interact with Patrick Anthony Cardin Author through the Services, we receive and store certain personally non-identifiable information. Such information, which is collected passively using various technologies, cannot presently be used to specifically identify you.

COLLECTION AND USE OF YOUR INFORMATION AS A CONSUMER The Services use and provide to our Customers certain Personal Data and other non-personally identifiable information about their Consumers and those Consumers’ interactions with our Customers’ products and services. Patrick Anthony Cardin Author obtains this information as a result of information being sent to our servers by Patrick Anthony Cardin Author’s Customers, by the tracking agent (the “Agent”), as embedded by or on our Customers’ behalf, on our Customers’ websites and in emails sent to our Customers’ Consumers. Patrick Anthony Cardin Author uses this data to create reports for our Customers to analyze how their Consumers interact with their products and services and to create reports and/or metrics against which they can compare their user base. In addition, we provide our Customers with aggregated and anonymous benchmark data that includes their Consumer data and our other Customers’ Consumer data.

This aggregate information does not identify you personally. Patrick Anthony Cardin Author may also disclose aggregated statistics and other anonymized (personally non-identifiable) information about its Customers and their Consumers, in order to describe our services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
OTHER USES OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA AND OTHER INFORMATION As part of our Services, Patrick Anthony Cardin Author and its affiliates may use Personal Data collected through the Service to contact you in the future about services we believe will be of interest, including marketing communications sent on behalf of multiple Customers or other parties (“Multiple Customer Emails”). All of our communications will include opt-out instructions, as follows:
1. Marketing communications sent on behalf of our Customers will contain instructions permitting the Consumer to opt-out of receiving future marketing communications from that specific Customer, and a Customer may also directly inform Patrick Anthony Cardin Author of an opt-out from such Customer’s Consumer (each, a “Customer-Specific Opt-Out”). If a Consumer opts-out of such marketing communications by informing the Customer, we will not be aware of such opt-out until the Customer informs us; however, the Consumer can still directly opt out of marketing communications by following the instructions provided by us to opt-out.
2. Multiple Customer emails will contain instructions permitting the Consumer to opt-out of receiving such future Multiple Customer Emails. Note that such an opt-out does not constitute a Customer-Specific Opt-Out.
